SOCHI, Russia – The head of Corendon Dutch Airlines says he was arrested near the Sochi Olympics for urinating on a fence outside president Vladimir Putin’s villa.
Airline boss Atilay Uslu was out celebrating the Olympic performances of Dutch skaters when he stopped to urinate on a fence and quickly found himself surrounded by Russian soldiers.
Uslu said the soldiers “asked me if I had not seen the security cameras or knew that it was Putin’s house?”.
Uslu, whose company sponsors many of the Netherland’s skaters in the Olympics, said he was released after about an hour, but about $1,364 cash was missing from his belongings.
“I don’t really feel like trying to get it back,” Uslu said.
